Goat Tuff Offers Opti-Vanes

GOAT TUFF is now offering it’s newest in the Opti-Vane line with its OPTI-VANE II, low profile vane for greater steerage and clearance.

GOAT TUFF President Jerry Smith made the introduction, “Our new OPTI-VANE II is an aerodynamic design with lower profile that increases surface area by 24% over our standard Opti-Vane. This provides the archer with more steerage and control especially important when shooting broadheads. In addition, the lower profile provides more clearance, especially important for all crossbows. OPTI-VANE II also features our patented Fusion Technology from Norway Industries that combines two different proprietary materials into a single vane that optimizes adhesion, durability and arrow flight. The soft black base material possesses optimum adhesion properties so every vane is not only easier to glue to the arrow shaft but provides a tight, secure bond regardless of impact or weather conditions.”

Smith continued; “The stiffer blade material and medium profile tapered design of the OPTI-VANE II with modified parabolic profile and consistent light weight provides optimum reliability, durability and flight characteristics for the most accurate, dependable shots.”

OPTI-VANE II is available in 7 colors including our newest color Pink. They are 2.75″ in length, .5″ in height and weigh a consistent 7.5 grains and are available in 36, 50 and 100 packs.

GOAT TUFF Products also offers the new Equalizer Release Aid and a full line of cleaning and gluing products for the professional and home arrow maker.

SureFire Wins Hellfighter WeaponLight Contract

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has been awarded a major military contract to produce the VBL-H (visible bright light heavy) fire control device for the crew-served weapon systems used by U.S. Special Operations Forces. The $16.6 million contract, for an indefinite quantity of SureFire HellFighter heavy-gun WeaponLights, was awarded by officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, in Crane, Indiana.

The primary objective of the VBL-H program, a subsystem of the Miniature Day/Night Sight – Crew Served Weapons project of the U.S. Special Operations Command Weapon Accessories program, is to provide increased optical augmentation to crew-served operators. This increased optical augmentation is expected to help crews with target detection, recognition, and identification in low-light/observation conditions on the battlefield.

SureFire’s HellFighter WeaponLight-designed specifically for the M2HB .50 caliber machine gun, M134 Mini-Gun, and M240-generates 3,000 lumens of focused, HID (high intensity discharge) light capable of reaching hundreds of yards into the darkness. HellFighter has been used in combat operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan and has proven to be an effective target illuminator and searchlight, as well as a non-lethal escalation-of-force preventer. In addition to mounting to the .50 caliber M2HB, M134 Mini-Gun, and M240-variant machine guns, HellFighter can also be hand carried as a searchlight or mounted to a vehicle or watercraft.

Work on this contract will be performed by SureFire at their Southern California facilities and is expected to be completed by September of 2015. For more information on the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, visit www.navsea.navy.mil/nswc/crane/default.aspx.

SureFire Awarded Contract for USSOCOM VBL-III

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, has been awarded a contract for a Visible Bright Light III (VBL-III) in support of the U.S. Special Operations Command weapons accessories program. The $14.9 million contract, for an indefinite quantity of SureFire weapon-mounted lights, was awarded by officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, in Crane, Indiana.

The objective of the VBL-III is to provide improved illumination capability for the small arms used by special operations forces. SureFire will be fulfilling the contract with its new “V-Series” LED WeaponLights, specifically, the M620V Scout Light® and M720V RAID™ light, both of which feature high-output white-light and infrared illumination from the same sealed unit. Unlike incandescent weapon-mounted lights, which require an infrared filter to produce enough infrared illumination for use with night vision devices, V-Series LED lights require no IR filter. To convert from white to IR light (or vice versa), the user need only twist the light’s self-locking selector ring, even on the fly.

Work on this contract will be performed by SureFire at their Southern California facilities and is expected to be completed by September of 2015. For more information on the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, visit www.navsea.navy.mil/nswc/crane/default.aspx.

Beretta Rolls out Xplor Light Shotgun

Accokeek, MD (November 16, 2010) All that remains within the Beretta warehouse are shards of speckled egg shells as Beretta unleashes the lightest predator of its kind, the A400 Xplor Light. Shipping now to dealers across the nation, this new shotgun truly is the offspring of the A400 Xplor Unico, aka the “Green Monster,” featuring many of the same innovative technologies.

These monsters of shotgun innovation share the following technological advances: the Blink® operating system that allows the shotgun to cycle 36% faster than any other shotgun; the recoil dissipating Kick-Off® system which reduces felt recoil by 60%; the lightweight Micro-Core recoil pad and the very best cold-hammer forged barrels in the world featuring the Optima Bore HP® geometry, delivering unparalleled ballistic performance.

The similarities end there, as the A400 Xplor Light weighs just 6.28 pounds, making it the lightest Beretta semi-automatic on the market today. Chambered for 2 ¾” and 3″ shells, the light green receiver performs time and again from the lightest loads to the last load of the day, making it the perfect hunting companion; comfortable enough to carry all day in the pheasant fields of South Dakota or continuously shoulder under the dove-blackened skies of Argentina. Visit www.A400Xplor.com for more information on this new monster shotgun, and the entire A400 Xplor family.

Beretta, established in 1526, is the oldest industrial dynasty in the world tracing its roots through 16 generations of continuous family ownership. Firearms bearing the Beretta name have been sold for almost 500 years. Beretta USA Corp. was founded in 1977 and supplies the standard sidearm to the U.S. Armed Forces. Today, Beretta manufactures, distributes and markets a complete line of firearms, accessories and apparel. Beretta also owns and operates six retail Beretta Gallery stores worldwide.
